missed you

Aside from taking pictures of my late-night curry, I've still been missing. What gives, you ask? Well in the last month, I've gotten married, I've started a new job (to put it in a nutshell) which has thrown my life as I knew it into a khaki-clad whirlwind. Also in the last month, I left home (and my new husband) for 2 weeks, I saw DMB in concert,

gained some weight, saw and heard in person the Secretaries of Defense, Health & Human Services and the VA, saw the Surgeon General (twice), and as of last night, am a new fan of Shaolin Jazz Project after seeing DJ 2-Tone and Sound of the City live at Blues Alley (Shanice will be there on 20 July!).

I've managed to squeeze in a few blog-worthy meals on the weekends, but have failed to document them because I just wanted to enjoy and devour (sorry). Eating, going to cultural events and now blogging, are helping me slowly get back to my norm that I loved, and miss, so much. I haven't been so good keeping up with style and fashion; I've been reading a week's worth of fashion blogs on the weekends. I have, however, recently purchased a vintage Coach City Bag in fantastic condition off of ebay (luckily, it's one of the few designer bags approved for work),

Coach shoulder bag

as well as a Longchamp Planete Large Tote (also for work). Add to that list of work-related purchases a pair of Naturalizer Deino pumps.

And I haven't even gotten my first paycheck yet.

Thanks for still stopping by and for your requests for posts, and for being patient with me. While I can't promise being on time with my regular features just yet (Because It's Monday, Toothsome Tuesday, List Wednesday, and Fashion on Fridays), I hope to be posting more often.

late night curry

My version of roti canai. Chicken curry with a scallion pancake. At midnight. Yippee!

Sorry folks! I'm indeed alive and well and have not vanished. Work has me occupied 24/7 (literally) for another week, so it'll be a few more days before I can even think about putting more quality content up, but in the meantime, here is a snapshot of my life at this very moment. I appreciate you stopping by despite my being MIA! (Maybe I can convince G to do a guest post!)
